PUF: Patrick as the Public Utilities Division Director, how did your background lead to the Commission?
Patrick Fahn: My background is in mechanical engineering. I started working at a power plant right out of college. I worked there for three years and interviewed for a job at the Commission because it's somewhat related to my background. I've been here for forty-two plus years.
PUF: Victor as a Public Utility Analyst, how did your background lead to the Commission?
Victor Schock: Accounting was my major. Prior to this, I worked at a company called Unisys doing accounting and management work and was ready for a change. I'd been there for twelve years and saw this opening.
